I have been using them to hold small balls of yarn.

One of my favorite blogs Not So Idle Hands made necklace lipgloss containers out of little ones.  Here's the link:

Not really an idea, but they remind me of cupcake or muffin tops.  Maybe you could turn around and decorate them as such, fill them with a little tricket for your son's birthday - as party favors?

*  I made a spaceship with mine.

I made one, then lost the my pattern (UGH). 

*  You could use them to make ornaments.  Paint the bottoms with plastic paint in whatever color that goes with your decorations.  Fill with whatever you want (small scenes, pictures, etc).  Add a hanger, hang on a tree, from a hanger, or (since they are flat) sit on table or mantel. 

*  Use them to fill with unusual potion ingredients for a Halloween display.

*  FamilyFun had a recycle kids craft made from them:  http://familyfun.go.com/crafts/cosmic-crafts-the-trash-masters-666336/

I like the snow globe idea (and you can seal it so it doesn't leak.)

Also the terrarium idea.

Heh, I made a mobile for my daughter's room years ago, with stars and planets. I took one of those, popped it open, put in a little spikey plastic ball that I added a googlely eye or three onto to make an alien, and added it on. It's a neat little flying saucer.
I like the Martian city idea.
